A typically original programme from the  ground-breaking Gildas Quartet, ranging from iconic works of the chamber music repertoire through to a recent work by Suffolk-based composer Peter Dickinson. Widely praised for their ‘energy, verve and refreshing approach’ the Quartet have performed at major venues to critical acclaim, and during the pandemic they have continued to reach new audiences through innovative online concerts, masterclasses and presentations. They are joined by long-standing friend and collaborator, pianist Nathan Williamson, in Dvořák’s scintillating Piano Quintet.
